I don't like the way that Elvis boy shakes his hip and plays that "race" music. I tell you, it will be the end of civil society.....

Grand Master Flash

. . .
It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep from goin' under

A child is born with no state of mind
Blind to the ways of mankind
God is smilin' on you but he's frownin' too
Because only God knows what you'll go through
You'll grow in the ghetto livin' second-rate
And your eyes will sing a song called deep hate
The places you play and where you stay
Looks like one great big alleyway
You'll admire all the number-book takers
Thugs, pimps and pushers and the big money-makers
Drivin' big cars, spendin' twenties and tens
And you'll wanna grow up to be just like them, huh
Smugglers, scramblers, burglars, gamblers
Pickpocket peddlers, even panhandlers
You say I'm cool, huh, I'm no fool
But then you wind up droppin' outta high school
Now you're unemployed, all non-void
Walkin' round like you're Pretty Boy Floyd
Turned stick-up kid, but look what you done did
Got sent up for a eight-year bid
Now your manhood is took and you're a Maytag
Spend the next two years as a undercover fag
Bein' used and abused to serve like hell
'til one day, you was found hung dead in the cell
It was plain to see that your life was lost
You was cold and your body swung back and forth
But now your eyes sing the sad, sad song
Of how you lived so fast and died so young so...

Don't push me 'cuz I'm close to the edge
I'm trying not to lose my head
Uh huh huh huh huh

It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep from goin' under
Huh, uh huh huh huh huh
It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep from goin' under
Huh, uh huh huh huh huh

Yes, there was a time when rap was relevant. I do think there's probably worthy stuff out there, but what's selling now isn't about that.
What I hear these days is just lame and offensive for the most part. Rap is dead. I think it may be another 20 years before people figure that out. Commercial rap is just boring to the point where I really worry about how dumb the kids who are going to care for me in the nursing home will be...

I never explored the Clash's music. Not that I didn't like them. That Magnificent Seven youtube video was impressive. I have no idea how you could play guitar and rip off that stream of lyrics so quickly. Any Clash cd's I should listen to. I guess London Calling comes to mind. Must be there made it big album. Educate me if you are a Clash fan. Thanks.

Well, for me, while London Calling stands the test of time, I find that Sandinista is the one that I return to the most often because over it's 6 sides they cover a whole range of material, including lots of dub/reggae influences, and some of those tunes contain my favorite lyrical content. They were definitely along ways removed from their debut by that point. For more insight, I'd ask the forum's resident Scot as he's a big clash fan, as is the MIA GOP (in fact, ghost was at the show that is on back of London Calling at Atlanta's Agora, as were some folks I know).

OK, time to go to the library to check into these albums. Thanks for taking the time to educate me.
